SnapBill named one of top three Tech4Africa Samsung Apps Ignite startups

We here at SnapBill are empowering African e-commerce, one high quality, fully brandable, completely customisable, automated and professional looking invoice at a time. 😉 And being recognised for our achievements while we are at it.

SnapBill took part for the first time in this year’s Samsung Apps Ignite competition hosted at the 2011 Tech4Africa conference. As organisers say:

Samsung Apps Ignite is aimed at giving startups great exposure in a once-a-year environment of investors, mentors, thought leaders, buyers, decision makers, journalists, influencers and potential recruits.

The field is limited to 8 pre-selected startups. Each startup is given the opportunity to pitch their idea and a winner chosen by the judges.

“The challenge is to craft a pitch compelling enough to get introductions to investors, users, customers, and for journalists to write about your product.” say organisers.

Looks like we did just that!

SnapBill, Plot my ride and Real Time Wine were named top 3 startups for 2011. Real Time Wine taking first, while Plot my ride and SnapBill took second and third spot respectively.

SnapBill would like to extend its hearty congratulations to the awesome brains at Real Time Wine and Plot my ride and give recognition to all the other top notch competitors in this year’s Ignite. Well done to all. It was an awesome experience being given the opportunity to take part with such a great bunch of South African startups.
